Eco boost or no

Trying to figure out how to attach a picture but here's my input! We just had a 31TS Wildcat, and upgraded to a 333mks. There are some limits that I maybe stretching on this, but I drive trk for a living. I upgraded the 2 ply tires to 10 ply and also have airbags on my rear axle.

Almost 16mpg this weekend pulling my 27DBUD. Climbed over Kelly's mountain while doing it. Put 17 in a previous post but did bad math. Hahaha

In regards to the original topic (To Ecoboost or Not Ecoboost) here's what I thought was a very in-depth long term evaluation. It's definitely a lot to read if you click on each segment to read it in it's entirety but overall it covers a lot of ground:
